Let the powers that be know how you feel about the stories they’re telling Hot Topic: Can Sonny Really Get Out Of “The Business”?
Like most of our readers, we find it hard to imagine GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Dimpled Don successfully extracting himself from Mob life. As he himself said of Julian’s efforts, no one gets out alive! And even if Sonny somehow succeeded… what would he do with himself? As many of you noted, this man needs control. Portrayer Maurice Benard gave us pause when he recently suggested Sonny could become Mayor Corinthos. As the city’s leader, he’d have that power… but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Sonny’s first step is just breaking free and while we don’t have much faith in that endeavor, we’re quite impressed with how it fits into the show’s ongoing conversation. With a faction of fans continuing to cry for GH to stop the violence, it’s just not that easy — and the writers have been showing us why! In fact, the Cover Story on page 24 details the latest hiccup encountered by Sonny in his continuing efforts. Getting out may not be easy, but watching Sonny try has proven to be good soap.
“Give me the gum, Sonny. Come on, spit it out!”
